Hello and Welcome

Hello and welcome to my ramblings, mainly about the random things through my letterbox.

I've been receiving random items through the post for many years now.  Most of the time I haven't a clue where they've appeared from - I'm forever joining mailing lists and entering giveaways - I never remember what I've entered.

My friends and colleagues are often amazed by what I've received - and no longer find it odd when I remark 'Oh, it came through the post'.

I got the idea about talking about these random items, photographing them and reviewing them in a blog from Ian Carpenter - the author of 'Guardianwork, published by Beautiful Books.

Guardianwork emerged from a project that Ian did a few years ago.  One day Ian decided that he would apply for every job advertised that day in The Guardian, the result is so funny, please read it

I was lucky enough to meet Ian last year and briefly mentioned to him about the random items, he encouraged me to start writing about them, so, nearly a year later, I've taken the plunge!

Oh and by the way - I actually paid for my copy of Guardianwork - it didn't appear randomly at all.

I hope you enjoy my mutterings - please 'follow' my blog - you can also find me on Twitter @annecater
